Not So Severe Weather
The garden has been progressing well, with the pumpkin leaves growing larger than my head and starting to vine out. The beets are coming up well, and the peas (something new for me) are growing fast. Two small carrot patches were planted but, with much anger from me, one patch was destroyed from cats digging up my garden. There is now a sad, empty spot in the garden. I have been considering trying something short season, like lettuce and radishes in that spot so at least I'll have something to show for the work.
To deter cats from my garden I have crushed and spread egg shells throughout, as well as continually dumping pepper and cayenne pepper throughout. Here's hoping.
